The York Daily Record/Sunday News presents its 2011 Division A boys' track and field all-stars:
ATHLETE OF THE YEAR
Ryan Knisely, Red Lion: Knisely had an outstanding sprinting season, both in the area and outside of it. The junior was the YAIAA champion in the 200- and 400-meter dashes. At districts, he finished fifth in the 200 and third in the 400. He also won the 200 and placed second in the 100 at the West Central Coaches meet in Altoona. At the Millersville Invitational, Knisely placed second in both the 100 and 400.
Jared Allison, Dallastown: The junior finished in a four-way tie for sixth place in the PIAA Class AAA pole vault, quite an accomplishment for someone who missed three weeks of the season because of an injury. He also took third place in the District 3 Class AAA pole vault event.
Matt Croft, Red Lion: The Division I cross country runner of the year finished sixth in the Class AAA 3,200 at districts. The junior helped the Lions pull out a narrow division win against South Western by winning the 1,600 and 3,200.
Kyle Duble, New Oxford: His efforts in winning the shot put and discus helped the Colonials pull out a close win against Central York. Duble also won the shot put in the big-school category at the White Rose Invitational with a toss of 47-11.34.
Mike Felton, South Western: He was a force for the Mustangs -- winning the 100 and 200 in meets against Dallastown, William Penn and Red Lion. Felton had a busy day in a win against Spring Grove, netting wins in the 200 and 400 before helping the 3,200-relay team to a victory.
Andrew Langston, Dallastown: The sprinter won gold in the YAIAA championships by running a personal-best 11.05 in the 100. That same night, he helped the Wildcats win the 400 relay.
Patrick Lehman, Spring Grove: The senior captured the YAIAA discus title for the third straight season. He placed fifth in District 3 in the discus. Lehman won the shot put and discus competitions in meets against Dallastown and Central York.
Jarred Posey, William Penn: The junior entered the PIAA competition as a second seed in the Class AAA triple jump and took home a silver medal after jumping 47 feet in his last attempt. During districts, he leapt 47-09.50 to set a new Bearcats school mark.
Mike Pugh, South Western: Pugh won the YAIAA long jump title at 21 feet, 5 3/4 inches. He placed 12th in the long jump at districts.
Jay Stone, Central York: The freshman hurdler won the 110 and 300 hurdle events in a win against William Penn. He also won the hurdle events in a loss to Red Lion and was a part of the Panthers' 1,600-relay team at the Penn Relays.
COACH OF THE YEAR
Brian Good, Dallastown: In his first year, Good led the Wildcats to an undefeated Division A crown. Several Wildcats had successful league, districts and state meets. Dallastown won a combined seven gold medals at the YAIAA meet between the girls' and boys' teams. At Class AAA districts, the boys' team finished a YAIAA-best 12th place, while the girls' team tied for 12th. At the state competition, Margo Britton won gold in the Class AAA girls' pole vault and Jared Allison tied for sixth in the boys' pole vault.
